"Chuck Driskell is a promising young author." - Don McKale, author and Hitler expert
 
 
Praise for DEMON'S BLUFF
 
"Driskell's newest action thriller is like a high-speed ride, veering seamlessly between action, romance and espionage.  As U.S. and Nazi agents battle for the ultimate secret, one thing is for certain:  the reader wins!" - Kelly Durham, author of Berlin Calling
 
"Demon's Bluff hit me squarely between the eyes.  As Driskell usually does, he draws me in with his characters and holds me with a tight, complex plot." - Scott Golden
 
"This is a first rate espionage thriller which I thoroughly enjoyed. The plot is well crafted as are the characters." - Dr. Mark M. Rubenstein
 
"Demon's Bluff is a fast-moving, entertaining, and thrilling yarn of deadly betrayal set in Panama during World War II.  It's an enjoyable novel that keeps the reader guessing." - Joe Epley

From the Author

When I decided to write Demon's Bluff, my primary goal was to create an action thriller that was a nod to the great books and movies of the 1940s.  I wanted a strong main character.  I wanted a ruthless villain.  And, most of all, I wanted a memorable heroine.  Also, rather than the book taking place in Europe or some other overused setting, I wanted to set it someplace different.  My research led me to Panama, a tiny sliver of a country that, during World War II, was overrun by spies and operatives.  In the end, I'm satisfied with the story I created.  I truly hope you'll enjoy Demon's Bluff.

I'm a sucker for World War 2 literature, both fiction and non-fiction, and Demon's Bluff hit me squarely between the eyes.  As Driskell usually does, he draws me in with his characters and holds me with a tight, complex plot.

His main character, Rollie, was interesting and upright, but with enough humanity to make him seem quite real.  I enjoyed his struggles and his want of female companionship.  His back story was intriguing too.

For me, Driskell's antagonists are usually his most interesting characters.  Here, Bernd is one of his best ever.  Refined and handsome (and Prussian...an interesting touch) the guy is a true sicko with a wicked sense of humor.  He made me laugh aloud several times.

Vivien was quite memorable too.  But Maria, the conflicted female nearly stole the show.  She was a tad over the top at times but added spice to the story.  I really liked both women.

Driskell added in the requisite amount of sex and violence I've come to expect from his books, and enough tertiary characters to make this big read go very quickly.

My only criticisms would be the lack of much World War 2 side-story.  He sprinkled in mentions here and there (his research and time period details were very good) and with the setting of Panama I guess there wasn't much more he could tell us.  I also felt the plot was a bit complex in points.  I had to reread a few pages but who knows, I might just not be smart enough to keep up.  I'd call these criticisms minor as this is a tantalizing read.

The book itself was slightly similar to The Rhinemann Exchange by Robert Ludlum.  Driskell's writing is easier and more "conversational" than Ludlum's.  In fact, I'm not quite sure what other authors I would compare Driskell with.

Well written exciting and fast pasted World War II thriller! Leads you from the Great Lakes and Chicago to Havana, Cuba and Panama City with the canal in the background then back to the United States. The historical accuracy is excellent and the development of each character is played so smooth you feel as if you know each of them.
I hope Rollie is continued in a future story since this time in history is wide open as our intelligence agencies are just being their growth into modern day monsters with a vast number of untold, behind closed doors, under the counter deals created in these agencies uncontrolled by agents from all levels approved and otherwise.

Thought it got off to a slow start, but ended up being a really good book. If you have been in the military you know the answer to "would they lie to you".

This was not one of his better stories. His first three were remarkable, and I recommed them highly. I am looking forward to his next effort.

Surprisingly good story that had a good flow. No excessive detail that is often found in WW ll, or some espionage novels.

Driskell's latest tale harkens back to World War II and follows Rollie Donohue, a government agent, as he tracks a would-be turncoat from windy Chicago to sultry Panama. The turncoat has access to America's most vital secret--and has already made contact with Nazi operatives prowling the Canal Zone. With his usual blend of intrigue, action and romance, Driskell serves up another roller-coaster ride of historical fiction featuring nasty villans, beautiful women and a good, old-fashioned hero!
